Message 88417 - Posted: 11 Oct 2018, 6:54:06 UTC

I am assuming this came in on the latest beta. In the past, when i downloaded new tasks they would appear in the list as waiting to run. Yesterday I downloaded two tasks from CPDN but they didn't appear in the task list. I had been working up to posting on CPDN boards but because I had occasion to pause computation on two tasks yesterday evening I saw that once they started computing, they appeared in the list.

Just wondering, if there is a way to tell that tasks in the queue have downloaded successfully without allowing them to start?

Did you by any chance click the 'Show active tasks' button by mistake in a mouse-by? That would have the effect you describe, and it's exactly the same in v7.14 as it always has been.

Thanks Richard,

Can't check till I download some new work which as cache is full will have to wait a while. I think you have almost certainly got the answer though. - Just I have never used that button deliberately.

Just look at the caption on the top command button. As usual, it shows what the response will be when clicked.

'Show active tasks' - currently showing 'ready to start' tasks too, will change to show running tasks only.

'Show all tasks' - currently showing running and pre-empted ('waiting to run') tasks only, will change to show cached and ready to report tasks too.

Thanks. Yews rookie error. I haven't deliberately used that button in over ten years of using BOINC!
